The Need For Embedding
Did you know that WordPress is the most popular website platform in the world? It’s true! WordPress is so popular because it’s an open-source platform that is completely free to use. In other words, you have access to all the tools that you need to build a website. If you own a WordPress website, you already know how powerful it is. But did you also know that it’s one of the most flexible platforms around?
That’s because WordPress is essentially just a series of HTML files laid out in a specific way. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not useful for certain tasks. Take the time to read our guide on creating a blog in WordPress, for example, and you’ll better understand what we mean.
WordPress is so flexible and can do so much that it makes a great platform for a website builder like Canva. Canva, in turn, allows you to embed a fully functioning WordPress website easily. That’s because Canva was built on the concept of content creation via web tools. And what’s more, Canva offers a quick and simple way to create content for your website. Once you create your content with Canva, you can simply upload it to your WordPress site and continue editing it as needed.
How To Embed A Canva Website Into WordPress
If you’re reading this, then you’re probably wondering how to integrate Canva into your WordPress site. Luckily, you can! In fact, embedding a Canva website into WordPress is actually pretty simple. To get started, you’ll need to perform the following steps:
Step 1: Create a Theme For Your Blog
The first step in integrating Canva into your WordPress site is to create a theme for your blog. Did you know that each time you make a change to your WordPress site, you have to save the file and then upload it? That’s a lot of work!
Instead, you can create a new theme, which we’ll call Blogger, by following the prompts in WordPress. When you’re done, your blog will look just like the screenshot above.
As you can see, the theme contains all the required elements to build a functional blog. When you’re happy with the look of your blog, you can then start editing the content.
Step 2: Create a New Post In Your Blog
Once you’ve created a new theme for your blog, you can start posting to it. Remember, you’re free to use any theme that you like for your blog. But if you decide to go with Blogger, then you’ll quickly understand why we chose this theme.
As you can see above, the theme contains all the necessary components to build a basic blog. But if you choose to implement some additional features, then you’ll need to go a step further.
For example, if you want to include a contact form on your site, then you’ll need to create another post and include the form in that post. When a visitor submits the data to your form, you can then use a third-party service like MailChimp to send them a welcome email.
Step 3: Customize The 404 Page
Did you know that WordPress provides you with a basic 404 error page? We mentioned WordPress provides a basic 404 error page. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not useful. In fact, it is! You can use this 404 page to provide visitors with more information about your website. For example, maybe you sell clothing and you want to inform visitors that this season’s fashion trends are hot and the items that they’re looking for aren’t available yet. Or maybe you’re an artist and you want to provide your visitors with information about your latest exhibition.
You can use the 404 page to provide additional information about your site. Or, if you’re running a blog, you can use this page to tell visitors that you’re currently unable to post new content due to technical issues. This way, they’ll know exactly what occurred and that you’re working to get the blog back up and running.
The great thing about the 404 page is that it’s completely customizable. So, if you have something specific in mind that you want to include on your site, you can do it! When creating your 404 page, you can use whatever elements you like. You can even use the free 404 page that WordPress provides to get started.
Step 4: Configure Email Senders
Did you know that you can use WordPress to manage your email senders? That’s right! You can use the platform to create as many email accounts as you need, which can then be used to send out emails on your behalf. Did you also know that you don’t have to have a professional-looking email to do this?
For example, let’s say that you have a clothing website and you want to inform customers that their orders have arrived. You can set up a new email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then, using the WordPress email sender tool, you can choose that email account to be the one that sends out the order confirmation emails.
This way, when a customer places an order and clicks on the confirmation link, they’ll be taken to the email account that you’ve set up. From there, they can click on the link to the shipping provider and track the order.
Step 5: Configure WordPress Central
As we mentioned above, WordPress can be used to create both personal and professional sites. Did you know that you can use the platform to host podcasts, music, and other media? That’s right! WordPress is a fully functional CMS that can be used to build just about anything a person might want. Did you also know that you can use it to create databases, emails, and perform CRM functions?
That’s why we mentioned above that it’s so flexible and can do so much. So, if you’re looking for a platform that’s capable of doing almost anything, then you might want to consider using WordPress. When you’re done with this step, your WordPress site will look like the screenshot above.
As you can see, we’ve already been able to customize a number of elements on our site. The great thing is that all of these changes are stored in a database, so if we ever need to make another change, it’ll be much easier.
The Power Of The Creative Cloud
Did you know that Google offers free tools for web designers and developers? We mentioned above that Canva provides you with a creative cloud, where you can design and create all your ideas and projects. Did you know that the same concept of the creative cloud applies to WordPress?
That’s right! As a WordPress user, you too have access to a creative cloud where you can design and create all your ideas and projects. It’s like having a fully functioning Photoshop or InDesign app right on your phone. Or your tablet. Or your laptop.
Did you know that you can integrate Google Calendar, Docs, and Sheets into your WordPress site? We mentioned above that Canva offers a variety of tools to help you design and create your website. But did you know that you can also use Google’s own tools to quickly create tasks, events, and schedules for your blog?
You can use the Google Sheets mobile app to create a basic spreadsheet and import tasks, events, and schedules into it. Then you can use the Google Docs app to create documents and embed them into your blog post.
